The server only sees the CloudFlare's IP and not the actual IP of the visitor

Hello Cloudflare,

Our Cpanel server is getting attacked by multiple IP clients.

The server only sees the Cloudflare’s IP and not the actual IP of the visitor, which means that the firewall / security plugin cannot work.

This is going to end up with potentially many 1000s of IP blocks accumulating in Cloudflare’s block list. ConfigServer deals with this by unblocking the oldest blocks whenever it adds a new one.

How can we solve this problem on our server?
